Intentional Walk: An Inside Look at the Faith That Drives the St. Louis Cardinals [Kindle Edition]
An inside look at the faith that guides the all-stars.
Louis Cardinals have long been one of the most successful franchises in the
major leagues. They have won 11 World Series titles and some of the most famous
players in the history of the game have worn the storied “Birds on the Bat”
on-field success has been well documented, Intentional
Walk is the first book which goes beyond the story of what happens on the
field to take an in-depth look at the men inside the Cardinal uniforms, and
examine how their strong Christian faith is one of the driving forces behind
Intentional Walk features the stories of Adam
Wainwright, David Freese, Lance Berkman, Matt Holliday, Carlos Beltran, Jason
Motte and other members of the 2012 Cardinals, written as those players and the
rest of the team tried to repeat the 2011 world championship. The book talks
about how they became Christians and offers their testimony about what it means
for them to have God play such a prominent role in their lives.
first-year manager Mike Matheny, a strong Christian as well, these men talk
about their success and failure, about the challenges that come from playing
baseball at the highest level, and how thankful and blessed they are to have
that God-given ability. In the end, however, what is far more important to them
is their life-long relationship they have established with Jesus Christ.
